    NOTE: The JASA Annual Dinner has been postponed until February 17, 2022.  JASA was eager to hold its annual dinner in-person this year; however, the on-going surge of COVID-19 and the resulting strain on our healthcare systems led to a reassessment of our plans.  We have postponed the Annual Dinner to prioritize the health and safety of our members, guests, their families, and our communities.

    We look forward to seeing you at Toyota Field in Madison next year to celebrate Alabama’s Japanese companies, Japanese culture, and Alabama’s many important connections to Japan!

    Each year, the Japan-America Society of Alabama hosts a special reception and fundraiser to allow our members and guests from all over Alabama to gather, network, and dine with a special program to celebrate the JASA community.

    Our Annual Dinner Celebration will be held in Madison, AL on Thursday, February 17, 2022 at 5:30pm. Join us as we celebrate the relationship between Japan and Alabama at Toyota Field's SportsMed Stadium Club. We will award New and Expanding Japanese Companies across the state, hear from JASA leadership about our community's mission and goals, and honor the recipient of the 2021 Samuel Ullman Award.

Regular Events


Kayoubikai (火曜日会)is our monthly outing to a local Japanese restaurant.  Held on the second Tuesday of every month, Kayoubikai is an opportunity to meet new friends with similar interests, practice Japanese, and stay connected with other JASA members. While membership is not mandatory to attend the event, we encourage registering for individual membership to support JASA  and stay involved with our events!

Annual Dinner

Each year, the Japan-America Society of Alabama hosts a special reception and fundraiser to allow our members and guests from all over Alabama to gather, network, and dine with a special program to celebrate the JASA community. Our special 30th Anniversary Celebration will be held on August 22, 2019! Following last year’s highly successful event, we are moving to a larger venue at The Club in Birmingham, AL. View more information about the event here. 

Cherry Blossom Festival

Each year, we celebrate with food, crafts, performances, and other activities at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens’ Japanese Garden to welcome the Spring. Join us in March 2018 for hanami (flower viewing) in Birmingham! Cherry Blossoms, or sakura (桜、さくら), only bloom for a few weeks each year.  In Japanese culture, sakura represent mortality and remind viewers of the beauty and transience of life. Thousands of people flock to parks in Japan to see the blossoms. Come see our Birmingham cherry trees while they are in bloom!

Our next Cherry Blossom Festival will be held at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens on March 16, 2018! We hope to see you there!
